so now i have the donor any tips before i start to strip it, looking to use the wheels , brakes, hubs , engine ,box,diff clocks wiring loom stripped down. any other gems worth keeping? looking to sell off the headlights ,taillights , maybe the struts, abs pump,vinyl roof is mint with a heated screen.
has anyone used the mx5 seats in the roadster? the donor has rather nice cloth seats, i was thinking about using them till i pick up leather items.
i also see elswhere some have used the mx5 servo and peddle box? quite like that idea any info anyone?

It might be worth putting up a 99p 'Wheelnut' ebay ad "Breaking MX5" or something along those lines. When I broke my donor I was surprised at how many people replied to that ad looking for small random bits that you wouldn't think of listing separately.
